It's time for a New Year's Eve special! Mr. Mendo closes out the year with a double review of Les Misérables and Django Unchained! And as a cap-off, you'll get an answer to the question we know is on your mind!
In Time (2011): Immortality is for the 1%
“Even though they add the mathematically necessary amount of action scenes, it just didn’t stand out as something I’d care to watch again.”Argo (2012)
“Had the film been helmed by a more seasoned director, or even a relative unknown, it never would have taken home the big prize. Because ultimately, the most interesting thing about Argo is that Ben Affleck directed it.”The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)
“There’s a very good reason the trailers for this movie never said, ‘From the director who brought you the heartwarming adventure Hugo!’”The Lone Ranger (2013)
Mendo takes on last year's controversial flop, which recently joined the hallowed ranks of films that have been nominated for both Razzies and Oscars. Also, there's some stuff about MAGFest at the beginning, and a bunch of absurd silliness scattered throughout that makes very little sense. In retrospect, Mendo may not have been the best person to tackle this film, but tackle it he shall!American Sniper is not the real Chris Kyle, and that’s okay
“I kind of hate that people are assuming that the film is trying to sanctify Chris Kyle by portraying him not as he was, but as, well, Bradley Cooper trying to finally win an Oscar. ”American Hustle (2013)
“Just like Ocean’s Eleven, it’s like watching a two-hour highlight reel of an awesome Hollywood party that you weren’t invited to; only, in this case, this particular shindig was a 1970s-themed costume bash.”
